    They should make Razorclaw an homage to the Universe 2003 version....come on that'd be amazing.

    Know That I am Razorclaw.

    Yeah that'll be interesting to see.

    I realized that over the weekend while talking with a bunch of other fans. Trypticon with a shuttle mode. Perhaps with a few adjustments to the mold similar to how they got from Silverbolt to Cyclonus.

    I know a lot of people reacted negatively, but...yeah...odds are *very* good it'll be him.

    And if it is, it'd be interesting to see if they do anything to give him a bipedal bot/dragon mode. But it'd at least be an homage to his role in FoC.

    ------

    So, UPDATED PREDICTION

    Wave 5 - 2016: Bruticus. Scattorshot as Onslaught's casemate.
    Wave 6 - 2016: Sky Reign. Onslaught as casemate (potentially with alternate colors/gray chest shield)
    Wave 7 - 2016: Computron. Trypticon (retooled Sky Lynx) as Scattorshot's casemate.

    Just a completely of the wall idea but what about repainting Skylinx as Go-Bots Zod with a dino head instead of a lynx head in combo mode?

    Set it up as a box set online exclusive and have his team made up of
    Cy-Kill form Deluxe Groove
    Copter from Alpha Bravo
    Fitor from Skydive
    and Tank from Rook or Crasher from Dragstrip
    with Bad Boy target master from Viper

    As much as I'd love updated Go-Bots toys, they're still the whipping boy of the fandom and there probably isn't much profit potential in the characters nowadays...

    Actually,that be interesting.
    So for the Guardians?
    Well i guess my choices would be for em' will be:
    -Road Ranger from Hotspot
    -Scooter/Scouter from Legends groove
    -Leader 1 From Fireflight/Slingshot/Quickslinger (Heck Leader-1 Could use just the Slingshot/Quickslinger and base his colors from Armada Leader-1 to avoid confusion,or make a "Gobots toy accurate" head.
    -Turbo from Wheeljack version of the Breakdown mold
    -Small Foot from Off-Road
    -Treads from Brawl

    And for a reserve team
    -Staxx from Optimus Prime
    -NightRanger/Backtrack from Groove (Make a new head based on Cybertron Lugnutz,but with a painted on 'stache.
    -Vanguard from First-Aid
    -Hans-Cuff from Streetwise/Prowl/Smokescreen
    -Mach-3 From Air Raid or Quickslinger.

    Actually,now i need to make a combiner wars "Combiner team" thread.

    He might replace Silverbolt as the Superion torso, that red and burgundy could give a more unified scheme.

    I need this

    Yeah, contradicting what I said earlier in the thread, I'm now looking at this thing and realizing that it's probably a piece of trash. Let's hope they make it better.

    Well, given that the reveal of the latest TFSS figure (Ramhorn) has shown off a tooling of the Brawl mode that could definitely be re-used as Nosecone, I think the possibility of Hasbro doing the Technobots is much higher.

    We haven't seen any pics of this guy since the painted prototype was shown, and the renders have different colors than the proto, so I think it's safe to say we haven't yet seen the final version.

    Still cautiously optimistic, here. Possible signs of two Technobots does not a team make, but it's something. Still thinking we'll see another Groove retool/repaint as Afterburner, and Lightspeed can easily be done from Brakedown or Dead-end, so that leaves Strafe (which I'm expected will be a heavy retool of one of the aerialbots, on the level of retooling that Scattershot is getting) and unknown new member of the team (which, I'm thinking, a second race car as a possibility, or a Rook retool).

    Well that's... disappointing.

    I know the Technobots aren't one of the better known/more popular Gestalt teams, but I always liked them. I'd hoped for better.

    I seriously believe Takara will do something. they don't do every figure Hasbro does, so they have room for more remoulds. Maybe a special set.

    Well, the picture is overly saturated, but that looks pretty much like the one that was shown the same time the figure was revealed. I still think there are changes to be made from that to the retail release; if nothing else because the colors on their render don't match what we saw (and the colors from the render would make for a different-colored torso mode, including the head, which has different-colored antennae in the render).

    I could well be wrong, but I don't think the figure that has been shown at one show and in this other picture (which I had missed, thanks for re-posting it) is what the final version will look like. Mold, yes, but colors, no.

    This.

    I honestly will get Scattershot only because I want more Technobots but I will not be displaying him in Fire Guts Superion mode.

    Ebay:
    Rumors just released from the Transmission podcast, which has been incredibly accurate in predictiong Titans Return and Combiner Wars figures, is news that the other Technobots are happening, and will be repaints/remolds of older CW figures. All completely as most fans predicted.

    -Deluxe Afterburner, a recolor/remold from Unite Warriors Deluxe Groove.
    -Deluxe Lightspeed, a recolor/remold from a Combiner Wars Stunticon car limb.
    -Deluxe Nosecone, a recolor/remold of Combiner Wars Brawn (yes, with the drill from BotCon Ramhorn).
    -Deluxe Strafe, a recolor/remold of a Combiner Wars Aerialbot limb jet mold. Probably not remolded much from being a conventional Earth jet though.

    WOOT.

    Also, the Afterburner info means a good number of people who bought UW Defensor are about to rage in 5... 4... 3... 2...

    If this is true, then 3P better make an upgrade set for Scattorshit to make him look more like Scattorshot.
    At least Computron is happening.

    Pretty much what everyone was betting on already. Good news either way.
